GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

4.2 Right to be present: Transporter and Shipper shall have the right

to have representatives present at the time of any installing,

reading, cleaning, changing, repairing, inspecting, testing,

calibrating or adjusting done in connection with the other's

measuring equipment used in measuring or checking the measurement

of deliveries of gas under the transportation contract. The

records from such measuring equipment shall remain the property of

their owner, but, upon request, each will submit to the other its

records and charts, together with calculations therefrom, for

inspection and verification, subject to return within ten days

after receipt thereof.

 

4.3 Care required: All installations of measuring equipment applying

to or affecting deliveries of gas shall be made in such manner as

to permit an accurate determination of the quantity of gas

delivered and ready verification of the accuracy of measurement.

Care shall be exercised by both parties in the installation,

maintenance and operation of pressure-regulating equipment so as

to prevent any inaccuracy in the determination of the quantity of

gas delivered under the transportation contract.

 

4.4 Calibration and test of meters: The accuracy of Transporter's or

Shipper's measuring equipment shall be verified at reasonable

intervals and, if requested, in the presence of representatives of

the other party, but neither party shall be required to verify the

accuracy of such equipment more frequently than once in any

thirty-day period. In the event either party shall notify the

other that it desires a special test of any measuring equipment,

the parties shall cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the

accuracy of such equipment. The expense of any such special test,

if called for, shall be borne by the requesting party if the

measuring equipment tested is found to be in error not more than

two percent (2%).

 

If, upon test, any measuring equipment is found to be in error by

not more than two percent (2%), previous recordings of such

equipment shall be considered accurate in computing deliveries of

gas, but such equipment shall be adjusted at once to record

accurately.

 

If, upon test, any measuring equipment shall be found to be

inaccurate by an amount exceeding two percent (2%), at a recording

corresponding to the average hourly rate of flow for the period

since the last preceding test, then any previous recordings of

such equipment shall be corrected to zero error for any period

that is known definitely, but in case the period is not known or

agreed upon, such correction shall be for a period extending over

one-half of the time elapsed since the date of last test, not

exceeding a correction period of sixteen days.
